Three Things: Meeting expectations

Three (actually four) things from the weekend that was in Atlantic Hockey: Meeting expectations Last week, Rochester Institute of Technology coach Wayne Wilson told me what to expect from his team’s upcoming series with Air Force: “We’re not expecting to start the third period down by any more than a goal or up by any more than a goal,” he said.

There’s a lot of hockey to play, at least 30 more games. But this stat stands out: the Purple Eagles claimed their fourth victory of the season last Saturday, a convincing 6-2 road…
